Artist Clones Herself Through Her Self Portraits

Using various costumes, makeup, and facial expressions, Japanese artist Tomoko Sawada clones herself thousands of times, and her self-portraits are really jaw-dropping.

“My first encounter with photography was when I was a child,” Sawada told The Kitab. “I started making photographic work and self-portrait during my photography class in the university.”

“My works are mainly (not only) ‘self-portraiture’ because it is the best way to explore my ideas and express my thinking,” she shared. “Self-portraiture can visualize and organize my ideas.”

Her unique portraits explores the meaning of individuality and identity in an age where our different personas show throughout several outlets.
